Refined Living
On A Storied Street

On a street as historic as this one, it’s only fitting that The Great Portland gives a nod to its notable neighbours while making its own mark. Drawing on the rich variety of architectural traditions in the area, this highly crafted building exudes a modern quality, from its welcoming exterior, to its considered interior.

Boasting a bright, natural limestone façade, bronze-framed lantern bay windows and cast aluminium balustrades, architect Simon Bowden creates a depth and rhythm using light and shade, bringing the building to life. Inspired by the distinctive glaze of Japanese porcelain, the building’s balustrades introduce additional texture as well as artistic flair and frame the windows graciously from the outside in.

At street level, open frontages on all three sides allow the public to connect with the street and the building in a new way. Respectful of the past, but with an eye on the future, The Great Portland blends both old and new to provide a modern home in a distinguished district.
